Ah, libol's autoconf code adds in libxnet even though it isn't needed. 
I'm not sure what the code is _trying_ to do, but it's doing it wrong.

On the plus side, I don't see references to xnet in the 2.0.4 syslog-ng, 
nor in the 0.2.5 eventlog. So my advice is to skip the old code and use 
the shiny new stuff.
